Trading Opportunities to be unveiled at Tunisia 2020 Summit
Opportunities in Tunisia introduced Tunisia 2020 – a forthcoming international economic development conference due to take place in Tunis, 29th -30th November 2016. This conference launched the 2016-2020 Development Plan, Tunisia’s reform programme and its major infrastructure projects looking for investment.
Join up for the UK Trade Mission to attend Tunisia 2020 to take advantage of the trading opportunities that will be emerging.
Tunisia’s transition to democracy made remarkable progress. The country ratified a democratic constitution, a general election ushered in a new parliament forming a national unity government with four of the five largest parties, while welcoming its first democratically elected president.
Tunisia has high expectations for economic growth, and President Caid Essebsi has called for structural reforms to overcome substantial economic challenges. These include a revised investment code; a new public-private partnership law; and reforms to banking, taxes, and customs. Enacting these reforms will be essential for attracting foreign and domestic investment.
Tunisia has a highly diversified economy. With a population of slightly over 10 million, it has one of the highest standards of living on the continent and prospered under long-standing government policies to develop manufacturing, tourism and agriculture. The high education level of the active population combined with sound macroeconomic management and the quality of public institutions offer particularly favourable conditions for doing business.
